Kim Mulkey Comments On Kamilla Cardoso Striking Flau’jae Johnson: ‘I Wish She Would’ve Pushed Angel Reese’

During the SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament this past weekend, a fight between South Carolina and LSU (Louisiana State University) took place that saw South Carolina center, Kamilla Cardoso knock LSU guard Flau’jae Johnson to the ground on the basketball court. The height difference between the two players (Cardoso stands at 6-foot-7, while Johnson is 5-foot-10) caused LSU head coach, Kim Mulkey to state that she wished that Cardoso “would’ve pushed Angel Reese. Don’t push a kid; you’re 6’8.”

At the press conference after the contest between the two schools, Mulkey held stern in her assessment of the much taller Cardoso going after Johnson who is almost a foot shorter.

“No one wants to be a part of that,” Mulkey said. “No one wants to see that ugliness; but I can tell you this: I wish she would’ve pushed Angel Reese. Don’t push a kid. You’re 6’8″. Don’t push somebody that little. That was uncalled for, in my opinion. Let them two gurl that were jawing, let them go at it.”

According to On3.com, the fight between the teams occurred with just two minutes remaining in the title game. Johnson pushed South Carolina guard Ashlyn Watkins after she taunted her when Johnson committed a foul. In doing so, Cardoso goes to attack Johnson and knocks her to the ground causing both teams to react and leave their perspective benches. Johnson’s brother jumped over the scorers table to defend his sister. He was later escorted out in handcuffs for intervening when he leaped to the floor.

Although the game was practically over, several players who left their bench were ejected from the contest, including Cardoso.

For her role in the melee, Cardoso did issue an apology for her action.

The South Carolina Gamecocks emerged victorious keeping their undefeated season going as they beat the LSU Tigers 79-72 to take home this year’s SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament.
